Applied Mathematics Techniques for Energy Markets in Transition
Sep 18, 2017 09:00 AM to Sep 22, 2017 04:00 PM Lorentz Center, Niels Bohrweg 2, Leiden,

The world is witnessing a tremendous change in its energy supply mix, demand behavior and market dynamics. Pivotal developments include ambitious climate change and environmental policies, the progressive move to sustainable energy, the (at times sudden) abandonment of polluting electricity generation, the growing availability of liquefied natural gas and shale oil and gas. This all has a significant impact on the core business and risk exposures of energy companies, on commodity and energy prices, and also on the many financial energy derivative products traded. Changes in market mechanisms and products demand novel mathematical models, stochastic and deterministic, microscopic and macroscopic models, and changing pricing techniques, defining new research areas within the field of applied mathematics.
